with the white house. there are things that could be done by executive action. let's watch. >> somebody said to me, well, it's a republican issue. let me tell you it's not a republican issue. if i remember my history, the first two years of the last obama administration congress and the senate and the white house were all in the hands of the democrats, and they did nothing, so spare me that it's only the democrats. >> perhaps the mayor is forgetting that you need 60 votes in the senate to get anything done, but be that as it may, his point is well taken. we all have a responsibility now to go forward to get something done, and it should be bipartisan, and i think it can be. whatever the president can do by executive or administrative direction, high pressure that he will do. i also think we all have a responsibility to tell the children that we did everything in our power to protect them, and i think this is different. for some reason it's different. children die all the time in ener cities and the rest. it's always tragic. somehow or other this has pushed it all over the top, and i think th
secretary john bryson >> bill: a lot of talk about gun control. will we see any action this time? good morning everybody. what do you say? good to see you today. it is tuesday december 18. this is the "full court press." we're coming to you live from washington, d.c. hope you're off to a good start wherever you happen to be in this great land of ours. obviously i'm not. and it is great to see you. invite you to join the conversation any time by giving us a call at 1-866-55-press. or sending us a little tweet message on twitter at bpshow. we're following you at bpshow. and on facebook. facebook.com/billpressshow here in our nation's capital. there is word that after president obama and speaker boehner met yesterday at the white house in the oval office for some 45 minutes there is word that they're getting closer to a deal. i was out for dinner last night when i got a quick text from the white house saying president obama had agreed to up the limit on the tax cut from $250,000 to $400,000 meaning that under that pla

state, that we need action, and people say, well, it has to be comprehensive, and, sure, it has to be comprehensive, but there are certain things we can do right away. we could get rid of assault rifles. we can get rid of magazines that have more than ten bullets in them. had this guy been limited to a magazine clip that had ten bullets, nearly half those children would survive. it would wouldn't limb nature on incidents like this, but we can cut down on the carnage significantly. we can also close the gun show loophole. you know, it's shocking, alex, that 40% of the guns purchased in america are purchased without the buyer being subject to a background check. even nra members, 74% of nra members and 89% of all gun owners want background checks before anybody can get a gun, so the men and women in congress have to stiffen their backs, not be afraid of the organization the nra, because the members of the nra are better than the organization, and it's time for us to act finally once and for all. >> howard, your boss, mayor michael bloomberg, has been leading the charge on gun cont

action by the senate. >> the classic ping pong gridlock and no way out. >> it's important to know how far we have come in the last seven days. a week ago we were closer than we had seen before on a particular deal. john boehner made a big concession allowing tax cuts to rise on income over a million dollars. president obama countered with a big concession and saying that that should be $400,000 and have fixes to social security on costs of living adjustments on that. what ended up happening? john boehner retreated their plan b that mike viquiera was talking about that was unable to pass and now we are in the stalemate we are in now. we were closer than before. >> you touch on a good point. that's lost now in the media. we are going-over the cliff. last week they are $450 billion away from a deal. that's less than 1% of the federal spending over the next decade. in d.c. terms, 400 billion seems like a lot. that's a drop in the bucket in d.c. terms. it's amazing that small of a number killed a deal. >> if you are buying a house or a car and one person said look, i'm going at $1 billion. usu
.s. supreme court took no action on prop 8. the justices were expected to announce whether they will review the legality of prop 8. the high court also took no action on several cases involving the u.s. defense of marriage act which denies federal benefits to married same-sex couples. the next conference will take place try day >>> oscar grant case in court again today unarmed oakland man shot to death by police officer johannes mehserle in 2009. officers for other officers involved in that shooting are appealing a federal judge's ruling they are not immune from liability in the family's civil suit against bart. the jury found mehserle guilty of involuntary manslaughter. >>> head of muni has a plan to appease critics of the city's central subway plan. muni chief wants to extent the central line through chinatown north along stockton street into north beach. he wants a station built at old pagoda theater on columbus and powell. north beach residents have been vocal about the disruption. the current plan calls for tunneling to extend into the area so drilling boards can be brought to the surf
, conservative groups have already condemned his harder bargain. heritage action called it the grand capitulation. republicans rm urged not to concede on the debt ceiling. mean whooit on the left, the huffington post, there's a headline condemning obama's raw deal saying the president's offer targets the middle class and the elderly. it's the cpi index they're taking issue with. the way you used to be able to get a deal done in washington is quote/unquote if both sides complained. that means there was equal pain. the question is if that still applies today. we'll see. there has to be some movement here. is the threshold going to get moved up? how will the rank and file respond to speaker bain they are morning? he's not presenting them any plan, but when the update is done. and what happens? where are senate republicans? some of them are in a sour place. when do they decide to launch their quote/unquote plan bs, which would extend tax rates up to 250,000 and punt everything else? we'll see. the next 24 hours are everything. they have to get a deal, a framework in place to avoid any sort of punt. >
aide, they felt it's up to the democrats to act now. so the christmas spirit has not softened actions. but what has softened? customer confidence. in the last week gallup found the drop in the likelihood congress will come to a deal. also holiday spending hit its lowest rate since the 2008 recession. while the president said before he left for hawaii that he said he hoped the holiday would give them a chance to cool off and reach an agreement, it appears republicans would prefer to stay home for the holidays. merry christmas, everybody. for more on this, joining us now from washington, we have contributor jared bernstein. also a senior fellow on budget and policy priorities. and a former economist for vice president joe biden. and of course nbc's luke russert. luke, i'm starting with you. we just got a statement from speaker boehner and the house leaders. and shock. they are putting it back on the senate. tell us about the statement and where it's going from here. >> it's a fascinating ping-pong match right now. but really with the senate, john boehner, eric cantor with mccarthy and m
for their actions. as a gun owner i having gone out, don't have any desire to go out and the reason i listen to a liberal show today is because, i hate to say it but you guys are probably make more sense than a lot of people on the far right. and at the same time, we have to focus on pulling together. and we have got to come together on our common ground. and we have to -- the common ground is what is best for the children. what is best for the future. >> bill: john, i agree. i think the common ground has to be some common sense measures. i am not saying you disagree with this but, you know, why should people be able to buy a gun at a gun show at and not have a background check there. >> back in the old days, when gun shows were wild. i will be honest with you. i totally agree with you on that. i don't think -- i don't want to see anybody buy a gun without a background check. >> bill: good for you. good for you. by the way, john, i think you represent most gun owners in this country. and the problem is -- i hate to cut you off but we are out of time. we will t
to promote gun control. remember this? >> in the coming days, jovan belcher's actions and the possible connection to football will be analyzed. if belcher didn't possess a gun, he and perkins would both be alive today. >> eric: so after that, bob costas said he wouldn't back track. but now, a couple hours later, costas called the jovan belcher commentary a mistake. he said my mistake and i left it open for too much communication. >> dana: i think bob costas has to say something. getting too much attention for it. i'm sure that nbc didn't like the type of attention he was getting. even if you agree with bob costas, even with the anthem and police honored on the field. but missed communication is another cop out. miscommunication means oops, i could have said it better. remember, we have heard this before in politics. as you remember, i don't have to repeat it. the question i have on this and the new information was the police. they find anymore a bentley and wake up and say hey, don't drive. maybe there is a little bit more of giving a pass. to people who are famous or wealthy with a be
in the process. now senate democrats want action. they want to change e. senate majority leader harry reid wants three changes to the filibuster. they would make debates public and provide a shorter timeframe for breaking filibusters. these are minor reforms and the filibuster can still be used. republican minority leader mitch mcconnell railed against the changed earlier today. he said they were an effort to marginalize the minority party. harry reid hit right back atd the gentleman from kentucky and referenced this comment senator john mccain made on monday. >> mr. chairman, i again apologized for what seems to have happened and much to my dismay it lends some credence to the argument that we ought not to do business the way that we are doing here in the the united states senate. >> senator john mccain was blaming rand paul of kentucky for holding up amendments on the defense authorization bill. in the process, mccain gave credence to filibuster reform. his comments step all over mitch mcconnell's claim. it's not an effort to marginalize the minority party. with 386 filibusters from republican
in that position. >> the only way we'll get action on this debt. we keep spending and spending and raising our debt by $6 trillion every obama term. that's what catastrophic. the republicans need to stick to the boehner rule. a dollar of spending cuts for every dollar in spending increases. why give in on taxes and the fiscal cliff fight when you will have all the leverage. megyn: simon? >> in the rasmussen poll that came out today the republicans lost 10 points since the election in the congressional generic fight. they are losing this economic argument right now. if they pull what mark is saying, you are going to see the republican party's numbers in the 20s. they have no leverage on this thing. >> not going to happen. megyn: we'll leave it at that. thank you both. just ahead. a much more somber note. new warning about the sarin gas threat in syria. city drivers claim a class action that the traffic cameras are actually rigged. soot whole world is watching and the president of the united states made clear there will be consequences if the assad regime makes a terrible mistake by using these chemi
for action after the horrific massacre in newtown, connecticut. the president took a number of questions. many of them on another major issue facing washington. negotiations on the fiscal cliff. with house speaker john boehner holding his own 52nd presser on that today. and we'll have more on that throughout the hour. but first in the renewed debate on gun control. the president today named vice president joe biden to lead an inter-agency task force to develop a policy response to the tragedy at sandy hook saying he cannot do it alone. >> ultimately if this effort is to succeed, it's going to require the help of the american people. it's going to require all of you. mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, pastors, law enforcement, mental health professionals, and yes gun owners standing up and saying enough on behalf of our kids. >> the president reiterated that he'll use whatever powers his office holds to prevent another tragedy like newtown. and his choice of vice president biden signals a robust effort to confront america's foremost gun lobbyists. >> the nra is an organization that
of this fire. there's the debt ceiling action too. take a listen to this, if you can, perry. >> it is somewhat like taking your child hostage and saying to somebody else i'm going to shoot my child if -- you don't want to shoot your child. there's no republican leaders that wants to default on our debt that i talked to. so i think that all to be a nonpartisan. >> maybe not the most eloquent strategy, but in these times we watch the rhetoric. >> is this setting up another fight? >> i'm sure steny hoyer would want to phrase that differently in the future. there's not enough time yet, so i think we are coming back to the debt ceiling debate again, probably in a month or so. that would be unfortunate in a lot of ways. >> c'mon, perry, you don't think they can solve it? i'm joking. thank you both. >>> general norman schwarzkopf died thursday in tampa from complications from pneumonia. in 1991, known as stormin' norman oversaw "operation desert storm" the first persian gulf war that forced iraq out kuwait. he was 78 years old. how-to knowledge to give us an edge, and more savings down every aisle. i
that will apply next year. arguably, you don't have to take action this year, you have the whole of next year during which you can reach resolution to that issue. now, the only reason why i think that's an extraordinarily bad idea is i think it would be viewed quite unfavorably by the financial markets. and so you could see a reaction. and it is really bad tax policy to be legislating in the middle of the tax year on the basic structure of the income tax for that year. >> host: we'll go to jeff in tampa, florida, independent caller. >> caller: good morning, how you doing? >> host: good morning, sir. >> caller: yes, i have a question for mr. buckley, and this is more -- it may be a little generic, but something that a couple of my friends and i have talked about and just trying a basic understanding of. instead of having an income tax, has there ever been any discussion about having a national or a federal sales tax to help offset so this way everyone from the rich to the poor, everyone pays the same amount? i mean, i'm not sure the exact amount that you would have to pay, i'm not an economist
